Do you have an antique light fixture or two sitting in a corner of your basement? Sharon Taylor offers advice on what to do with those timeless beauties.
Where can I get replacement crystals?
Lowe’s Home Improvement now carries silver, gold-tipped, Edison and crystal-cut.
Where do you have light fixtures and chandeliers restored or rehung?
I always go with Randy Davis; his business is located in Relics Antique Mall. He repairs, restores, adds chain link and will often have replacement pieces such as ceiling caps and chain links. I love that he buys, sells and sometimes even trades so that if I ever get tired of a piece, I have options. His showroom is chock full. You can reach him at 417-459-3466.
How do you recommend highlighting chandeliers?
Ceiling medallions are like cake toppers. I like to paint them in an offset color from the ceiling. It really makes the piece stand out in an artful and dramatic way.
